★★★★★

Fantastic food. The 3-course price fix dinners are a real bargain. Love the atmosphere and the service. Can’t wait to return.

The Surprise du Jour

A Winterborne flashback from Gilbert’s Portland Restaurant over 10 years ago.
Review by David Sarasohn

The strange thing, of course, is that Alsace has no sea coast.

And hardly any border with Thailand.

But two years after taking over the Winterborne restaurant, Alsatian Gilbert Henri has put his own impressive mark on one of Portland’s seafood specialists – and his mark extends so spicy Thai prawns. Now, he has overhauled not only the menu but the dining room as well, giving it a warm, friendly feeling.

The menu is even friendlier.

Henri has kept many of the specialties that for years have drawn maritime munchers to […]

February 27, 2018 – Crab Juniper

★★★★★

We are longtime diners at Cuvee and appreciate Chef Gilbert Henry’s attention to a truly delightful dining experience each time we visit. We have made the trip from Portland to Carlton every winter for many years for one dish: Crab Juniper. It is a seasonal menu item only during Dungeness crab season, usually off the menu around April 1. A blend of exotically seasoned basmati rice, delicate white fish, Dungeness crab, pears, and cream sauce. Other standard consistent menu dishes are equally as good, our friends like the Boeuf Bourguignon. The Prix Fixe menu is $35 for three courses, we […]

Where Sasha Went

(A Customer’s Experience)

There are a lot of really great restaurants in the Yamhill/Willamette/Tualatin Valley area thanks in part to our robust wine industry. Up until recently, I had focused most of my time dining at restaurants in the Portland area, there are so many great places there, you could go out every night and never run out. Having recently moved out of the area has given me the excuse to branch out a bit and boy was I ever happy to have given that chance after enjoying an unforgettable meal at Cuvee in Carlton, Oregon.

The restaurant resides on the main street of Carlton, […]

September 18, 2017 – Absolutely superb!

★★★★★

Absolutely superb! While in town to watch the eclipse we visited a few vineyards and wine tasting spots around Carlton. We asked for recommendations but found the suggestions bland. Then we saw Cuvee. Wow, what luck. I cannot say enough good things about the food, its preparation, the service and the atmosphere.
Clearly, Cuvee was totally booked for the evening with large groups. However, we were met at the door and graciously accommodated. Their fixed price meal offered options to meet many tastes. We chose their seafood dishes and were not disappointed. Perfectly cooked. Perfectly seasoned. Perfect wine pairing. We were […]
